Fight fire with fire on the mean streets of the Big Apple.

The product of a life spent in the tough neighbourhoods of NYC, Marcus Reed was a consummate street thug and heir to a criminal empire - until everything changed with a failed attempt on his incarcerated father's life. Taken under the wing of Detective Terry Higgins, Reed sets out to rule NYC from the other side of the law. Blood is never far away, however, as his mentor's murder sets him on a path into gangland territory to uncover and take down the killer.
